Hav X, Hav Y + Hav X, Lack Y = 25 + 10 = 35
Hav Y, Hav X + Hav y, Lack X = 25 + 25 = 50

35/50=7/10

Having X and Having Y = Both = 25
Having X and Lacking Y = Only X = 10
Having Y and Lacking X = Only Y = 25
Lacking X and Lacking Y = Neither = 40

Ratio of X to Y = (25 + 10)/(25 + 25) = 35/50 = 7/10

Venn Diagram:

X only = 10 (Having X lacking Y)
Y only = 25 (Having Y Lacking X)
Both = 25 (Having X Having Y)
So Having X = 10 + 25 = 35
Having Y = 25+25 = 50
Asked $$\frac{Having X}{Having Y}$$= $$\frac{35}{50}$$=$$\frac{7}{10}$$
